Technically, it was the executive, not the judicial branch, that failed on this one...
Could be wrong, but I believe that the etymology of "our" football, springs from the fact that the Aussies called their game football, on which American football was based.
Someone correct me if I am wrong please.
Thanks for reminding me of Erick Smith. When I was thinking about their safeties this year I completely forgot him. Hopefully he is as good as advertised.

Hate to hear this, as the defensive backfield as whole was so shaky last year. I always feel like you can never have too many DBs on a team, so the loss of depth hurts, but they'll bring in quality players with the next recruiting cycle, so best of luck to the young man...as long as he doesn't end up at PSU.
The one thing that really distinguishes college football from nearly every other sport on the American landscape is its tradition. I love college football. I love the fact that teams can have such simple uniforms that are still distinct and identifiable. Look at Alabama, PSU, *ichigan, USC, etc. They are pretty bland, yet we all know exactly who that team is. I prefer to stick with these traditions. Hell, I wish they' kept the '68 jerseys.
That being said, if having flashier, "sexier" uniforms, with different options and colors gets OSU better players, then bring it on! (Note: Oregon's combinations of hideousness allegedly bring it awesome recruits, but they're not a recruiting blue blood by any stretch of the imagination.)
The tertiary uniforms really are only rolled out by Nike for one reason - to get all of us fools to buy a new jersey every single season. My Michael Wiley (#5) and Troy Smith (#10) jerseys sure seem to continue to work out well however...(although the Eddie George throwback is my all-time fave).
Tell them that it is a FACT that it was called soccer at its inception, due to the fact that it was called "association football," and the word soccer arrived on the scene shortly after the codification of rules, as it is short for association. So, being upset about it being called soccer is just stupid and elitist. Also interesting -
"several official publications of the (English) Football Association have the word "soccer" in the title, and two popular British television shows about the sport are Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday and Soccer AM."
I HATE that internationals pretend like Americans invented the term and use it incorrectly. The main reason it was called soccer in the US and Canada is due to the success of "American football." It's not our fault that we have abundantly more athletes, and a larger sports landscape with more options than any other country in the world. Sorry, off my soapbox now.
I'm gonna be THAT guy and say it... I expected a lot more hotness from a women's collegiate gymnastics team in the south...
It seems for some reason that Taylor to ND has picked up a big head of steam. Will this be another case of a Cincy kid who gets away?
James Franklin's "je ne sais quoi,"
Sorry, but that line immediately made me think of this
Maybe something like this...
I've never heard of that...what is? Have anyone ever done something like that before?
PSU is always so original!
There is a joke to be made about how she doesn't defend the hole well, but I won't make it...
You have to admit, it is a thing of beauty...

Night time is the right time!
IMO, the solution to "paying" players is simple. Allow bidding/payments from schools (or flat rate payments, with bonuses coming from NCAA for All-Americans, Award Winners, etc.), but then have players pay their own way, no schollies anymore for any player that receives compensation from the school.
That way, at least SOME of the of the revenue can be used to support some portion of academics, as well as the "non-revenue" sports.
Just a thought.
ESPN has slowly tailspun from being a reputable news reporting source, to a joke of a news creating blackhole.
Well played sir, well played!
What is that? If
I'm a recruit, I'm confused and creeped out at the same time.....
Florida State bound!
Dude, this the best one!
I stand corrected. Thank you. Then I have NO EXCUSE for the students not going, unless of course they're not football fans.
